Another part of the article is a military version of the 700 Remigtonu namely: M40A1 Sniper Rifle. The weapon was ordered by the military tests in 1966. The Army has found that Rem. 700 is undoubtedly the best weapon for snipers, Marines took her into the equipment under the name M40 Sniper Rifle. The weapon in 1967 arrived in Vietnam and became a feared weapon. The gun had but a wooden stock which hardly resist weatherproof and was supplemented butt McMillan with pistol grip, formed from interwoven plastic fiberglass for strength and was provided with camouflage pattern.
